Though it was originally thought that our pets were unable to contract coronavirus, new advice suggests that cats are actually able to carry the virus on their fur and so pass it on to others.

This has lead to cat owners being urged to keep their pet inside if they are from infected or self-isolating households to help stop coronavirus spreading.

According to the British Veterinary Association (BVA), cat owners are not at risk of catching COVID-19 from their pets – but it could carry from hands to fur.

Encouraging owners to take “sensible precautions”, BVA president Angel Almendros told the BBC: "Practise good hand hygiene, try and keep cats indoors.”

And though keeping our feline favourites around the house might be good news for animal-loving households, it might not be as welcome a development for your cat.

So, to make things a little more bearable for them, and keep them as comfortable as possible, we’ve rounded up the best cat beds to make your feline friend feel at home.

The best cat beds for your home

Yaheetech Cat Scratching Post Tower Tree Pet Palace | £52.96 from Amazon

Not only can your cat cosy up and catch some sleep in this uber chic basket, they can also use it as a scratch pad.

Hand Felted Cat Bed | £46.19 from Etsy

Handmade from high-quality, ecological Australian merino wool, this unique cat bed is essentially a cocoon for your cat to feel fully protected and safe in.

It’s worth noting though, that as each piece is individually made each is different and measurements are approximate.
